Linda is dead. And her memory will have to struggle for any left-over respect forever heaped on her famous husband, the cute Beatle.For example, Linda McCartney's death Friday was fodder Monday for radio jock Howard Stern, who predicted Paul McCartney would quickly and easily replace Linda with any woman he wanted. Give it a few weeks, and we'll see Paul photographed with another woman on his arm, Stern said.Such was one public remembrance for Linda, "The Lovely Linda," as Paul called her in a 1970 song.

Low-key and charming are not the adjectives that came to mind when I first heard ABC was doing a two-hour prime-time film about Paul McCartney during May "sweeps." I expected the breathlessly hyped-up worst, and while I wasn't exactly amazed, baby, I was delightfully surprised by "Wingspan," which airs tonight at 9. ABC is promoting the two-hour documentary as a backstage look at Wings, one of the most successful rock bands of the 1970s, and it is certainly that. But I have almost no interest in Wings or the music it made, and I loved this film for the other, more human stories it tells about a husband and wife searching for a way to have a fulfilling life as personal and professional partners.

Every time I think the animal-rights extremists can't get any more twisted in their logic, they find a way to prove me wrong.The other day I came across a book called "Save the Animals! 101 Easy Things You Can Do" with a foreword by Linda McCartney.The last time I saw this woman, she was banging a tambourine in a music video with Paul McCartney and his band.Paul, of course, was doing all the heavy lifting. In other words, he was the one actually supplying the talent by singing and playing the guitar.

Also showing will be Ken Vrana's Snow Angels, a documentary look at three women with breast cancer that is dedicated to Linda McCartney (who died of breast cancer in 1998)
